Many people might not know this about me but I started taking photos at a very young age. By 11 I had learned how to shoot with a manual film camera and not only that but I could then develop the film and photos all by myself! (Black and White of course I’m no Houdini).

As I continued on in school I kept taking photography courses, I got my first digital camera when I was 15 for Christmas 1999 (not a cheap purchase then, thanks mom and dad!) and finally in University I took even more courses in film and digital photography. I learned how to develop color photographs and fell in love with many great photographers like Cindy Sherman and Robert Frank and almost majored in photography but instead chose Film to major in.

I later got a DSLR which I would haul around with me on every trip but then as I started filming my travels more and more photos have begun being thrown to the side and I haven’t even brought my DSLR with me on the past few trips. On my last trip however I took more photos than recent and have renewed my passion for it again.

These were taken with my P&S camera on my last trip as I traveled from London to Cardiff, Wales, to Tenerife in the Canary Islands and then finally to Berlin. I hope you enjoy them as I hope to start sharing more and more on the site. Don’t forget to also check out my Facebook Page for even more. ๐Ÿ™‚ (click to enlarge)
